Snapdeal sees 40pc jump in kids category in 2022

Ecommerce platform Snapdeal says the volume in the kids’ category is 40 percent higher this year (January- May 22) as compared to the equivalent period last year (January- May 21). The results are based on analysis of data from the last five months, according to a statement.

The upbeat mood in online shopping is reflected in a 130 percent growth in occasion wear for children, which caters to special occasions including festivals, birthdays and other social celebrations with friends and family.

Similarly, the sale of ethnic wear for children is up 263 percent this year due to families getting the opportunity to meet and jointly celebrate weddings and festivals like Eid, Baisakhi, Pongal, and Guddi Padwa. A large part of the demand for kids’ ethnic wear was centered in Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, and Maharashtra, the statement said.

The rapid growth in some categories is distinct from the trends in the previous two years, where there was a greater emphasis on utilitarian wear like tracks and t-shirts and top-bottom sets, largely for home use. With more kids’ fashion being bought online, shopping trends on Snapdeal indicated consumer preferences for items that offered “more value.” Complete outfits in the Rs 499-699 range were popular with users.
